16th Asha Day at Napa Valley
On August 27, 2016, the 16th annual Asha Day was celebrated with great joy at the Jamieson Ranch, Napa Valley. The event was generously hosted by Congressman Mike Thompson and his wife Janet. Long-time Asha supporters, Kailash and Gisela Chaudhary hosted Freddy and Asha student, Babita at their home.
On her first trip to the USA, Babita proudly spoke on behalf of thousands of Asha students from Delhi slums and shared her overwhelming journey.
The fundraiser also saw old and new Asha supporters gather together for a silent auction followed by dinner. The sumptuous Indian dinner was provided by Harjeet, the owner of Aroma Indian Cuisine. Highly impressed by Asha’s work, William and his wife Anna Leigon, owners of Jamieson Ranch, agreed to host the 17th Asha Day at Napa next year.
A Big thank you to everyone who have made this fundraiser a success. It wouldn’t have been possible without your support.
